Gliadin AB IGA- 8 (Negative less than 11) Results were 15 in March
IGG- 100 (Positive, over 17)
Also, blood tests showed anemia.
We have a family history of celiac disease, and an appt. with a Pediatric GI in 2 weeks.

Also there could be IgA deficiency which is causing the IgA results to come back normal when otherwise it would be positive.
I would get the full celiac panel with the tTG and EMA(very specific for celiac)
FYI-The tTG test may be taking place of a biopsy for diagnosis in kids in the near future. There is an article on it on the celiac.com homepage. Here is the link: http://www.celiac.co...l?p_prodid=1160
Anemia is linked with celiac as well.

Fortunately, given my toddler's failure to thrive diagnosis they made the referral to the Pediatric GI. I would think they would have a little better of an idea what is going on?
Oh, and the Igg should have read greater than 100. I guess they stopped counting at 100.
